Solo Per Te was opened in March 2010 by Lesley. Opening her own boutique was something she had wanted to do for a long time and with her children grown up she decided she wanted to devote her new found time to opening up her own business. Solo Per Te strives to offer high quality goods that cannot be found on the high street – something a little different!
With large windows, glass shelves, plush carpets and a spacious feel, the store is undoubtedly luxurious, but Lesley maintains a warm and welcoming atmosphere. But what really makes Solo Per Te stand out is the impeccable customer service that is offered – “We like to make Solo Per Te special by offering a personalised service, spending time with our customers to make sure they find exactly what they want without pressuring them into something that might not be perfect for them”. Lesley knows her customers like the back of her hand and tells us that she even keeps certain customers in mind when she’s buying for each season! She likes to source new designers and especially keeps an eye out for products that are practical with an edge, items that she knows Solo Per Te shoppers will love.
We asked Lesley about her favourite items in her store at the moment; “At the moment it would have to be the beautiful Taisir Gibreel silk scarves, Tasir bases her designs on Scottish landscapes and the colours are just so vibrant and wonderful! Also the gorgeous Spanish handbags from Cats Of Mardrid. And of course, all the Cocorose shoes are great. But my favourite for this season has to be the Alice
from The Royal Ballet collection!”.
Cocorose London are proud to have their shoes in this wonderful store! Lesley tells us a little more; “Cocorose are very popular with all age groups and for different purposes –travelling, nights out when the heels come off and to change into in the evening at a wedding when the dancing starts! And much more!”.
And key trends for the season? Lesley thinks summer pumps will top the must-have list along with wedges and nude patent court shoes, “I also love snake and animal prints on shoes! Very on-trend for the season”.
Cocorose London would like to thank Lesley for taking the time to answer our questions and featuring on Spotlight On.
